I just ordered a slew of books from Amazon.com (I love that site). Some are brandy new and some are used (I buy a lot of the Amazon.com used books without ever having had a problem).
This is Mary Lou Weidman’s book called Whimsies & Whatnots. I have another of her books and this one looked really interesting. I think she’s the greatest and very talented. You know what? I wouldn’t be a bit surprised, now that I’m looking at this image again, if I don’t already have this book in my studio (I literally have about 800-1,000 quilting/crafts books)! LOL Yeah, I think I bought this one once before! I have so many doubles of things that I love, you wouldn’t believe it. Maybe that will all settle down after my lobotomy.
I was turned onto this book at Road to California by a Pickle. It’s a great one but I’m not telling why. You’ll have to read the next issue of Quilter’s Home. I got the last used copy on Amazon for $30.00. YIKES!
I liked the cover of this book called, Textiles: A Handbook for Designer — and that was enough for me to get it. Now that I’m designing fabric I should begin to understand the process. Although I must say, while designing for Troy I found it fascinating to briefly learn of the different processes involved and I loved my Troy fabric.
I own and use Adobe Photoshop (the super big version) so buying this pricey book, Adobe Photoshop for Textile Designers, seemed a good choice. Now, if I’ll only crack it open, I might be able to do some good work! LOL
Califon inches it’s way to the press
This morning, Jeff and I met with Northcott designer, Ro Gregg, to go over final versions of Califon that will debut at Spring Market. Pretty exciting.
Meet Marco, Ro’s Dog. He’s so friendly and cute but wouldn’t stand still for the photo! What a cuuuute face!
Designing fabric is like having a baby. The first one will always hold a special place in your heart, but the others are equally as important and you love them all for very different reasons.
Here are some websites that had been forwarded to me that are either friend or foe of the Pickles. Take a look by clicking on their names!
Later, chippies! xoxom
